Rostrevor Silent Retreat
We are having a weekend silent retreat in the beautiful Benedictine monastery at Rostrevor, Co. Down: http://www.benedictinemonks.co.uk/ The monastery invites us into an atmosphere of silence and peace allowing us to listen more deeply to what God may wish to communicate to us. We will follow the rhythm of monastic life by joining the monks in their daily Prayer of the Church (sung). There are beautiful walks nearby in public parks, which also help us to feel closer to God through the beauty of Spring! Fr. Leon will help the group, and each one individually, to explore different methods of prayer and so enter into a more personal and meaningful conversation with God.
This retreat will be subsidised by the chaplaincy. Students will be asked to pay for public transport and to make a modest contribution to the cost of the retreat. Anything between €60 and €100 per person for the entire weekend would be welcome, but nobody will be excluded for lack of finance. Those who can afford to pay more will help those who can pay less. Payment will be private.
